Promotion shall mean an increase in a professional staff member's basic annual salary accompanied by movement to a higher salary level with a change in title. The two distinct routes for such promotions are: 

Salary increases are increases in a professional staff member's base annual salary associated with such employee's defined period of professional obligation. Six types of salary increases are common for professional staff within SUNY. They include:

Procedures for Vacancy Promotions:

Hiring departments that have vacancies as a result of turnover, promotion or a newly created position must adhere to the following hiring procedures: 

Hiring departments will prepare and submit a Recruitment Authorization Form (RAF) to begin the recruitment process. Once the RAF has been approved by all signatories, the vacancy will be posted on the College's job vacancy website for thirty (30) days. During the 30 day posting period all applicants (internal and external) have the opportunity to apply online for the vacancy. At the end of the 30 day posting period the Affirmative Action Officer will provide electronic access to the Search Committee to all the online applications that have been submitted for the specific vacancy. The search committee is encouraged to interview all qualified internal applicants who meet the qualifications for the job posting.

If at the end of the search committees interview process an internal applicant is chosen and approved to be hired against the job vacancy, the hiring department will prepare a Personnel Action Form (PAF) to effect the hire. 

Procedures for Reclassification Promotions and Salary Increases:

In the cases of promotional reclassifications and salary increases, the following procedures will be followed. Proposals requesting reclassification promotions or salary increases may by submitted by employees or their supervisors for review by the appropriate senior College Officer. Those recommendations receiving approval from the senior Officer will be forwarded, with identification of the funding source and approval of the Budget Office, to the Human Resources Office for analysis. Upon completion of this analysis, the Human Resources Office will forward the entire packet including a summary of the analysis to the President. Following presidential review and, if required, a review by the Budget Office, the President will notify the Human Resources Office of approval/disapproval. If approved by the President, the Human Resources Office will advise the appropriate Officer of the approval, provide an appropriate effective date, and request the preparation and submission of the Personnel Action form. If disapproved by the President, the Human Resources Office will advise the appropriate Officer of the decision. The employee will also be notified by the Office of Human Resources via the returned Request for Promotion form, which will be accompanied by a Request for Review form.

Reclassification promotion and salary increase proposals must include the following documentation:

All promotions will be accompanied by a salary increase funded from the College's operating budget, which will result in a new salary that is not less than the minimum of the salary level for the new title.
